The F in UKF stands for Frome – the market town in Somerset and birthplace of founder, Luke Hood. Following arena takeovers at Exit Festival and Let It Roll, the next UKF10 (10th anniversary) event on 5 October, UKF Frome, will see UKF return to its original hometown and Frome’s most famous performance space, Cheese & Grain, for a very special party featuring Friction, Grafix, Hybrid Minds and The Prototypes.
To commemorate the occasion, UKF have teamed up with Frome’s Lilley’s Cider (https://www.lilleyscider.co.uk) to produce a locally sourced bottled cider, ‘Fire DNCR’. The limited edition bottles will be sold at UKF Frome this weekend.
UKF Frome will feature some of the scene’s biggest DJs, Friction, Grafix, Hybrid Minds and The Prototypes, alongside MCs Verse, AD, and Junior Red, in an intimate venue that’s hosted secret gigs from Glastonbury headliners including Foo Fighters, Ash and Loudon Wainwright. Tickets for this one-off unique event are on sale now.
15 miles from Worthy farm. 22 miles from the legendary D&B city Bristol. 110 miles from UKF’s current HQ, Frome is where Luke Hood grew up, fell in love with bass music and launched UKF aged just 16. 10 years later, UKF is one of the most prominent brands in global bass culture, and holds events across the world from America to Australia. But never in it’s original hometown, until now.
The heart of the town and run on a not-for-profit basis, the Cheese & Grain is just as likely to host community meetings and art exhibitions as it is secret gigs. And on October 5, it will be home to a very cheeky UKF10 (legal) rave. In addition to UKF10 events, UKF is celebrating its first 10 years with a slew of exclusive UKF10 singles from some of the biggest and most exciting names in bass music, a huge London event at Studio 338 on 14 December, with further big announcements to come.
